Well, I don't know if it'll stick, but I've decided to start doing the CrossFit WoD. So far so good. Mini-report for anybody who's interested: Day 1 was pullups, done ladder style: Do 1 during the 1st minute, 2 during the 2nd minute, until the minutes catch up to the number done. I could only get to the 6th minute and couldn't do 7 during the 7th minute. The workout was so short that I started the timer over and went through it two more times. Lats are sore today, so I think it went ok. The guys on the CrossFit message board said that I could've stopped after the first lap and then worked on some skill like kipping pullups or handstands, but that what I did was fine. Day 2 was tabata squats. Do as many as possible in 20 seconds, rest 10 seconds, repeat for a total of 8 sets in 4 minutes. That's it, the total workout. Very strange. My legs were absolutely blasted for at least an hour after the workout, but it just didn't seem right to only do 4 minutes of workout for the whole day. I think I should've worked on a skill to increase the time, but didn't think about it at the time. So far, the most striking thing is the time economy. The first workout was about 30 minutes and the second one was, well, 4 minutes. I also read later that there's a standard warmup that would be a decent workout in itself that I should've done first. If I did that first, then one workout would've been about 40-45 minutes and the other about 15-20 minutes. That's some serious bang for the buck. I think it's going to work out well. I'll post updates if there's anything interesting to write about.
